      UTG+1 ($40.09) 80bb
      CO ($44.90) 90bb
      Hero (BTN) ($50) 100bb
      SB ($52.51) 105bb
      BB ($35.22) 70bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.75, 6 players) Hero is BTN 9 K
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1, SB raises to $3.25, 1 fold, Hero calls $2.25

      Flop: J 6 4 ($7, 2 players)
      SB bets $3.75, Hero calls $3.75

      Turn: T ($14.50, 2 players)
      SB checks, Hero ?


      Villain is 20/17 AF 2.7 - ABC 3bb winning player.

      3b SBvsBTN is 11%

      Cbet in 3b by street 70/47/76

      AFq by street 43/34/26

      WTSD 19%

      Now preflop is a bit questionable. He had a bit higher fold to 4b so this hand is prolly better to 4b and flat smth like KTs since it dominates his JT, QT. If his 3b is even higer then our K9s is easy flat, right?

      Postflop I am wondering about my turn action? Does it make sense to barrel here? I guess there are some better hands we fold out but then we must be shoving R.

      Or is taking a free card okay?

      If we bet smth like 10$ on turn and he c/r shoves we have reasonable EQ to call even vs smth like 2p, we are making a slight mistake vs set. So how big should our bet be in this case? It decides if we call turn shove.

      Against 11% its better to call stronger hands like KQ and KJ maybe KTs.

      K9s is slightly weaker and is a good candidate for a 4bet bluff. His high fold to 4bet makes this a perfect candidate.

      Definitely bet turn to fold out hands like A5s 55 77 88 A2s middle pocket pair suited aces. Unless you know he likes to check raise very often.

      I'll make it something like 8 dollars. That's all we need to fold out hands like the above. Take note we are not folding out T or J or better
